Happy Birthday!

Yesterday, August 12th, was E's 13 birthday. We had a quiet party at home, but I made this cake for her, in honor of one of her favorite book series. In case you can't read the words, it says, "Redwall feast."

E. loves books and drawing, but the present that drew this smile was a gift certificate to the iTunes music store. She bought her own MP3 player earlier this year, so the prospect of new music is enticing.

E. loves to draw and she loves Redwall, so much of her drawing is based on Redwall-style characters. When I discovered this recent doodle on the back of a score-sheet, I decided Beatrix Potter might have competition.

She says I only say that because I'm her mother, and directed me to the preface of one of her Redwall books, in which the character deprecates the praise heaped on him by his mother, because, after all, mothers are biased.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Happy birthday, E!! And, if you'd like an opinion on your art from a fellow teen, your mom's right! That's amazing!

You can't tell, but under the bag of Maltesers is a bag of cashews--all for E! So, SHE had something to celebrate!
